Copyright Infringement and the Advantages of Registration


All original works that are fixed in a stable and permanent form are automatically deemed copyrighted pursuant to federal law. That means that if a work is new, rather than copied, and on a fixed platform such as paper or electronic device, then the work is copyrighted. However, in order to reap all of the benefits of a copyright, it is important for the copyright owner to register with the U.S. Copyright Office.
